2 years diagnosed level started at 370 since then my highest level has been 135 and on average 93-115 type 2 diabetic.
Thank you at first in was very depressed about learning I has type 2 diabetes I have slipped a bit on eating and exercise, my A1C is about 5.6 the last time I checked also I have not been to the doctor in almost a year, but I take my Meds everyday and check myself about once a week. I am going to get back into managing my type 2 so I won't become a type 1 I am 44 years old, I also checked myself today and my level was 92.Welcome to our community! That is a very good control that you now have. I hope you can keep it that way. Are you able to manage your diabetes with only diet and exercise?
Thank you are you serious type 2 since 16 wow,! I used to eat really bad and drank sodas like there was no tomorrow that orange soda is what I think did it to me. I may have a regular coke now maybe once a month and I do not drink diet soda at all. Can you give me some hints and eating trends?Welcome fellow Texan! I am in San Antonio
Glad to have you here and look forward to getting to know more about you! Make yourself at home
Stay away from soda lol I completely changed my eating habits.Welcome to the forum! I am glad you're here. I'm going to be spending a little bit of time down in Dallas this weekend.
Your control is very good. I'm glad you have been able to adjust. Please post tips, tricks or any encouragement you might have, and don't be afraid to take it from other people!
Well to begin with...you have T2 diabetes because you are genetically predisposed to have it. You do not "eat yourself into diabetes." You are insulin resistant, that is the hallmark of T2 diabetes. Most likely at this point you are still making an adequate amount of your own insulin, your body simply does not know how to use it properly. You do not technically become a T1. You will always be T2. Even if you ever get to the point where you need insulin...you are still T2. T1 diabetics test positive for a certain antibody that destroys the insulin producing cells in the pancreas. Now, as a T2 it is certainly possible to lose that function to produce insulin. That is what happened to me. My pancreas no longer produces the insulin I need to survive and I use an insulin pump. But..I am still considered to be T2.Thank you are you serious type 2 since 16 wow,! I used to eat really bad and drank sodas like there was no tomorrow that orange soda is what I think did it to me.

Click the User CP button at the upper left corner - this will take you to a menu of all the customizing options for your account.Does Anyone use Actoplus? That is what I am on and it seems to be be working just fine. Also I see some of you with details on what meds you take and photos of yourself, can I put a photo of me on the site? How do you do all this I have been trying all day.
600 and they called her borderline? Hmm I wouldnt call that borderline...but thats just me.The only reason I have not been to the doctor is because everything seemd to be okay I have made an appointment for this month and I will be checking my kidneys and liver and A1C. I love to chat and talk about Diabetis i was never depressed when I found out I had it I just tried to change my eating habits. i also have a friend who is 48 years old and he drinks like a fish and his level is about 330 all the time, I also have a X whos sister tested at 600 and they told her she was borderline and I said no way that full blow diabetic. What do you think? I have 3 co-workers who are on the pump.
